Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with these Easy to Make Lucky Charm Cookies

St. Patrick’s Day is this weekend! That means it is also mid-March.. where is time going? Back to St. Patty’s Day. I thought I’d help you celebrate by sharing this super easy to make Lucky Charms Cookies recipe. All you need is a box of Lucky Charms cereal, a package of sugar cookies, one egg and butter. That’s unless you want to make your own dough, then keep scrolling for my favorite sugar cookies recipe.

Making the Cookies

First, separate the marshmallows from the cereal (I did about 1.5 cups) and set aside. Next, prepare the cookie dough per instructions. The package that I got only called for 1/2 cup of butter and 1 egg. Once the dough is prepared, mix in about 1 cup of the marshmallows. Save the 1/2 cup to top the cookies and garnish. If you’d like to make your own dough from scratch, I recommend this recipe. I have tried it and it makes good sugar cookies.

Once you’ve folded the marshmallows into the dough, use a teaspoon to drop cookie dough onto a baking sheet. Make sure to place them about two inches apart. Bake at 350 (or temperature on your package instructions) for about 8-9 minutes. Remove from oven, they will continue to bake on the baking sheet for a few minutes as they cool down. Remove from baking sheet once cool, top with extra marshmallows and that’s it! 😉

Chicken Ramen Noodle Skillet

Chicken Ramen Noodle Skillet

Today’s recipe is Asian inspired. Yes, sometimes we eat non Tex-Mex meals too 😛 Truth is there’s a new Ramen restaurant near us, though we’ve had the opportunity to stop by, we just haven’t. So, I figured that it would be nice to make some ramen, until we make it into the restaurant.

The recipe was super easy to make and doesn’t require much experience. I cut the chicken into small pieces and seasoned it with salt, garlic powder and red pepper flakes to taste. Then, I let it sit in the refrigerator for a few minutes before cooking.

Making Strawberry Cream Pies

First, start with adding boiling water to a bowl and mixing in the Jell-o, making sure to stir until jell-o is dissolved. Then add the cold water and ice, the mix will slightly firm. You can set it aside for a few minutes to help it firm. Once the mix has sat out for a few minutes, you can whisk in the cool whip. It should now be fluffy and you can add the strawberries at this point. Now, add the filling to the pie crusts and refrigerate for a few hours. They will continue to firm in the refrigerator and once you remove them, you can garnish them as desired, with whipped cream, fresh strawberries, etc.

Easy Breakfast Recipe: Chorizo, Egg & Potatoes Tacos

Easy Breakfast Recipe: Chorizo, Egg & Potatoes Tacos

Tacos are a way of life in Texas! Ask anyone who lives here, they’ll agree 😉 Seriously, from breakfast to lunch to dinner, there are so many ways to eat them.

I was never really big on breakfast tacos, but my husband loves and eats them so much, that they kind of grew on me. Though, we have our favorite Taco places here in Houston, sometimes it’s just easier for me to make them at home.

I always try to have tortillas, which I buy fresh from the bakery at Kroger. And other ingredients that I can add to the tortillas too, like eggs and bacon. This is a simple and my personal favorite breakfast taco combination.

But I also like to switch it up. So, I thought I’d try something different and bought some chorizo and frozen Potatoes O’Brien, which are perfectly diced with onions and peppers. This and a few eggs would make delicious breakfast tacos.

Date Night at Home with a Tex-Mex Flair

Date Night at Home with a Tex-Mex Flair

Today is all about date night at home. I’ve teamed with four bloggers to bring you some fun and simple date night ideas that you can do at home. Because let’s face it, sometimes it’s hard to get a sitter and have a date night out on the town. So, with these ideas, you can still have a special date night. 😉

My idea consists of trying new recipes. I find that cooking together is great activity to do as a couple. And cooking something new, is almost like going through a trust exercise. My advice is;

  1. Find a recipe you both want to try
  2. Shop for ingredients together
  3. Make the meal together, no excuses…
